How long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of
thy people? Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; And givest them tears to drink in great measure. Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: And our enemies laugh among themselves. Turn us again, O God of hosts, And cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved. Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: Thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. Thou preparedst room before it, And didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the
land. The hills were covered with the shadow of it, And the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars. She sent out her boughs unto the sea, And her branches unto the river. Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, So that all they which pass by the way do pluck her? The boar out of the wood doth waste it, And the wild beast of the field doth devour it. Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: Look down from heaven, and behold, And visit this vine; And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, And the branch that thou madest strong for thyself. It is burned with fire, it is cut down:
They perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.

This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, When he went out through the land of Egypt: Where I heard a language that I understood not. I removed his shoulder from the burden: His hands were delivered from the pots. Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder:
I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.

selves unto him: But their time should have endured for ever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the
wheat: And with honey out of the rock should I have satis

For they have consulted together with one consent: They are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; Of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; The Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: They have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. Do unto them as unto the Midianites; As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: Which perished at En-dor: They became as dung for the earth. Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: Yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: Who said, Let us take to ourselves The houses of God in possession. O my God, make them like a wheel; As the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, And as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with thy tempest, And make them afraid with thy storm. Fill their faces with shame; That they may seek thy name, O Lord. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever;
